Re: Ask the CBSA!

Anyone working at Hamilton Airport? If so, can you comment on what work conditions are like at the airport and the types of tasks you most commonly do? Any overlap between traveller and commercial operations? Thank you.

Re: Ask the CBSA!

Re: CBSA Boots?

The 5.11 ATAC 8" CSA boots do not appear to be thermally insulated as far as I am aware, which is a CBSA boot requirement. Anyone who has these boots, can you confirm their winter usability and if they are acceptable, seems like a few of you peeps got them? Also, any other boots that are popula...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Do the CBSA issued cargo pants have knee pad inserts, like the 5.11 Tactical pants? If so, which knee pads would fit or are compatible, any recommendations?
